Weekly Contest: ‘How’s RIM Doing?’

Comments

It was a quiet week in terms of BlackBerry news, but a big news week for RIM. Quite a bit of hype surrounded the company as we neared the release of their Q4 earnings report, with analysts predicting big numbers. And then… not so much a bang, but more of a whimper: the numbers weren’t what everyone was expecting, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has opened a formal investigation into their stock-options problems, and their stock nose-dived from the hangover.

So the question becomes: how do you feel about RIM? Is this latest news a minor diversion towards world domination, or a sign of slowing momentum? Post the best comment answer and you could win a nice little package from the fine folks at BPlay, featuring 3 free games and the BlackBerry theme of your choice.

LAST WEEK’S WINNER WAS Robert S., who likes to bludgeon BlackBerry haters with his spare Treo to teach them a lesson in manners. Enjoy the iTunes gift certificate and avoid the cops!

    I think there is no question of a slow down for RIM, and I believe that when the numbers are tallyed, the sales on the 8800 will be mediocre, at best. In fact, I will predict that the sales on the 8700 model will surpass it by a significant margin showing there is a slow down. They may have logged a million new accounts, but I would also suggest that most of those are directed to the Pearl and 8700 with people signing new contracts to get the phone inexpensively (i.e. Amazon). In the end, their stiffest competition in the consumer/prosumer market is yet to come with the release of the iPhone which will definitely rock their ship with a serious wave.
